Big tart, aroma...sweet tart, sour, fruity - cherry. Mostly clear, dark reddish brown. Sweet, sour, tart finish. Tart cherry fruitiness and some dark malt character to balance. Overall quite sour but a very smooth sour. Very drinkable...and "rare" of course.

750ml bottle. I’m surprised at the rating because I like this but I woudl think most people would find it offensive. HEavy enamel ripping/burning lacto balsamic character to it and pretty much nothign else.

Bottle thanks to Russell. Pours a clear amber with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong oak, lacto, and dark fruits. Thin mouthfeel with strong lacto and oak with light dry sourness. Very good.

Bottle. Aroma is peach, lacto sour, oak, and some good funk. Great nose. Taste is nice sour and dry, clean finish. Some sour strawberry taste comes in at the finish. Great looking and tasting beer. I wish bottles were more available.

Bottle thanks to the folks at De Garde. Pours a brown/red color with a small white head. A big woody vinous nose, berries, Brett. The flavor is deep malty balance with sourness, funky at times, brown malt, a bit sharp sourness at times. Good.

Growler and on tap at rare barrel. Deep reddish brown color. Tart fruity aroma, lactic. Palate is lightly sweet with some drier notes. Tart cherry, oak, funk, mineral, charred wood. Excellent beer, on par with the Russian river beers in my opinion.
